I've had my car for over a year now and
still love every moment I'm in it. If
you want speed in a car, this is the
one to buy. Plus it turns heads
everywhere you go. The only problem is
that everyone wants to race me. Oh,
I love that it's a convertible,
especially living in California, and
that I don't have to get out of the car
to operate the top.
Incredible car all around for what it
was made for. Looks, performance,
engine sound is perfect especially with
an intake, HID's, digital dash, push-
button start, good fuel economy, lets
you stay in gear up to 9,000 rpm's if
you need to, stereo controls very nice
and conveniently placed by driver,
seats are nice, car feels fast no
matter what speed your going and your
nice and low. Cornering is superb, you
can go 80mph on ramp to highway all the
time and switching lanes is nice too.
Braking is very responsive. In winter
make sure tires have lots of tread or
you will be spinning out all over the
I like the car and you can get used to
it turning a few heads wherever you
go. Besides clutch I never had to
change or replace anything in car at
all and I can drive aggressive at times-
-I highly recommend this car.
If you race at stop lights-clutch may
not last. Revs under 4,000rpm=low
power so it's not so great from a
stop. You feel every crack in road and
when you hit any bump in road, windows
vibrate--but it's not really bad. I
had year 2000 model-rear plastic window
was no fun.
Driving my car is my favorite part of
everyday. This car is everything you
could ever want in a sports car.
Handling, power, 9k redline,
convertible, new technology, and much
more... all with an average of about
25mpg. Below 6k rmps this car is great
driving, extremely fun, and still has
enough power to get you where you need
to go. Above 6k rmps (VTEC) is like a
roller coaster ride. The car rockets
fowards as you watch the digital
speedometer climb, the rev limiter
lights up and you know its time to
shift for another 3k rmps of powerful
sounding, head jerking, adrenaline
9000RMPS, 25MPG, Convertible,
Preformance oriented 6 speed,
handling, comfort, looks and comments
from people like no other (almost no
one has any idea what kind of car I
drive... its an S2000. A what?)
Sound system, radio controls, power
(yes it has enough for some people but
it just keeps me begging for more)
factory turbo/supercharger perhaps?
At least the 2000 and 2001 model have
had a series of electrical and
mechanical issues. Oil starvation, oil
consumption, ECU failure, spark plugs
backing out to name a few. Serious
issues with bent valves as well. The
problems are mostly quality control and
design issues (some are driver error).
Some of the problems lead to
catastrophic engine failure. Honda is
starting to deny valid warranty claims
for technicalities. Engine repair is
extremely costly due to lack of
aftermarket parts and low quantites.

9k redline. Great looks.
Honda's response to warranty issues
related to design and quality control.
No GPS (available in Europe and Japan).
Spartan interior. Stereo cover hits
knees. 2000 and 2001 stereos were
